sounds like you may need to look at the compressor under the hood and see if the wire on it is plugged in and make sure its not cut or broken. the squeak could be due to a loose belt try tightening it if it is possible
squeaky noise is common from brake pads going against the brake disc.
This is caused by lose calipers or stiff calipers unable to fully open up. This makes the brake pads very close to the brake disc.
When you are travelling at a certain speed, tension on the wheels may cause it to incline inwards or outwards at a very small degree but that is enough to get the brake pad to rub against the disc causing the squeak.
Another possiblity is the brake disc rubbing against the disc guard. Usually metal and behind the disc. You said you had a collision, this may have distorted the disc guard causing some parts to touch the brake disc.
If you have the time, take the vehicle to an autoshop of your choice, and ask them to grease all fittings on the front end. My car did the exact same thing, it was the ball joints. You may need a new ball joint, but being a 2009, I highly doubt it unless its been in an accident or something. There are grease fittings on the front, I believe there should be at least 5, maybe more, but the sound you are experiencing is the equivalant to a pogo stick if I'm correct. Hope that helps.
The noise is caused by the axle button being worn out, this lets the axle move back and forth and clunk, this is a unique problem with C clip retained axles, it is a noise issue but will not fail and cause any more damage, in order to fix it you must have the axles pulled and the diff carrier checked for excess wear where the axle retainning C clip rides, if the carrier is ok then replace the axles.
